How to Join


 
The North Puget Sound Faceting Guild is a non‐profit
organization focusing on the faceting of crystals to
make gemstones and promotion of related interests.

Our general service area is the North Puget Sound
region of Washington State, North of Seattle.
Membership, however, is open to anyone with an active
interest in faceting and finished gemstones regardless
of their place of residence.

The purpose of the club is to promote mutual interests and
benefits of its members and to the general public in
faceting, gemology, and in the promotion of kindred
arts and crafts.

Bi-Monthly Guild Meetings
Our meetings are held every other month and visitors are always welcome.  Here's your chance to meet other faceters and use different brands of machines, purchase faceting rough, trade patterns and learn more about the hobby
